THE former Manchester stock exchange building purchased by retired footballers Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, and due for redevelopment into a boutique hotel next year was occupied by homeless squatters on October 17 but the pair didn’t appear to be too worried by this.
One of the leaders of the Manchester Angels – the group occupying the building – Wesley Hall told the Manchester Evening News: “What a great guy Gary Neville is. We’ve been in negotiations with him and things are looking good. He said the main building work isn’t taking place until February, so we’ll be okay to stay until then. He knows we’ll look after the building and make proper use of it until the building work starts. This isn’t a long term thing, but we’ll have so much going on in here to help people.”
